Commercial Groups and Ships
Guild of Interstellar Merchants
Based on the planet Entralla, this Guild is comprised of commercial spacers
who ply the spacelanes of the Pentastar Alignment.
This Z-10 Seeker was purchased used by Elga Arbo, who spent every credit
she had - and a few she didn't - on making it the fastest ship in the
Corellian Sector. The Bureau of Ships Services once recognized it as the
fastest commercial ship on record, a fact the Arbo used to promote her
courier business. Unfortunately for Arbo, her indebtedness caught up to
her. Her financeer, Gydio Lucone, threatened to seize the ship if she
failed to pay off her loans. Arbo disagreed, and a firefight broke out.
In the end, Arbo was seriously wounded, and her co-pilot, Maceb Joodsen,
stole the Redshift Runner and fled the sector.
Rim Commercial Mining
This corporation mined a number of planets in the Mid and Outer Rim Territories.
A Suwantek Systems starship design, the TL-1800 was a 30-meter-long craft
which typical of most commercial freighters. It was lightly armed, poorly
shielded, and slow. It was sometimes referred to as a "Waddle"
by starship captains. Despite its appearance and perception, the TL-1800
was a reliable craft, especially after Suwantek replaced the Portal Delta
nav computer with a more reliable Fabritech model. The TL-1800 required
a pilot and co-pilot to operate, and could transport up to seven passengers
and 110 metric tons of cargo, depending on the interior configuration.
An additional 300 metric tons of cargo space could be realized with the
addition of cargo pods. The TL-1800 was armed with a pair of laser cannons.
